(Centennial 




My sincere congratulations to Waltham High School’s 
centennial graduates! 

You “49-ers” of the twentieth century enter upon 
your post-graduate careers with a hundred years of 
progress in education behind you. No effort has been 
spared by your parents and teachers in equipping you 
mentally, physically, and morally for your role in life. 
I hope sincerely that you will realize your own and their 
fondest ambitions and that you will make a rich “strike" 
in the accomplishment of worthwhile deeds. 

Happy prospecting to all of you ! 

John F. Devane, 

Mayor 



The century mark is but a milestone in the process 
of achieving better living through better education. The 
torch of learning must burn as brightly in the years to 
come as it did in those that are history. 

Richard S. Huff, 
Headmaster 



That illustrious group of teachers who have preceded 
us down the halls of time had but one purpose, namely, 
to cultivate in the largest number of our future citizens 
an appreciation both of the responsibilities and the 
benefits which come to them because they are American 
and free. We do well to follow in their footsteps. 

John W. McDevitt, 
Superintendent. of Schools 



The achievement of 100 years of progress in education 
is worthy of everyone ’s commendation ; my personal 
congratulations go to the members of our Centennial 
Class along with my sincere hopes for their success in 
the future.

RICHARD LOCKHART 

It was the year 1849 that a small, unimposing wooden 
structure opened its doors for the first time as the new 
high school for the city of Waltham. Slowly trudging 
through the corridors was a little group of bewildered 
students, amazed that it was to constitute the first student 
body of the first Waltham High School. 

From 1849 until 1902 the secondary school population 
expanded until it outgrew the confines of that first 
wooden building. In 1902 the central section of the 
present high school was constructed. Nineteen thirty-five 
found it necessary for a larger structure, and so the 
wings and gymnasium were added to the central edifice. 

As sophomores in 1946, the present graduating class, 
like the group of 1849, solemnly made its way into the 
halls of the present Waltham High School, little realizing 
that they were destined to be the centennial graduating 
class. Yes, we, too, w r ere bewildered and amazed at the 
large structure, the long hallways, the rushing about of 
the juniors and seniors. 

Our high school career thus began in no spectacular 
manner. Gradually we were absorbed into this new way 
of life. The new rules and regulations confused and 
astounded us, but despite the ready assistance of the 
upper classmen we soon became acclimated. We were 
now part of W. H. S. 

Our first few w r eeks were spent in zealous study, maybe 
not so much to acquire knowledge as to impress our 
teachers. However, we soon drew our heads from our 
books to take part in the school affairs and began by 
electing our class officers. The final tabulation of the 
votes found handsome Hon Farrell, president; Jo Mula, 
vice-president; Herb Everett, secretary-treasurer; and 
Gerald Arsenault, auditor. 

We joined the rest of the school in support of all 
the sports, which included cheering the football and 
hockey squads on through comparatively mediocre seasons. 
The 13 - 0 gridiron victory over our archrivals from New- 
ton was a big consolation, however, and gave the whole 
school as well as the team definite encouragement. Then 
the basketball season rolled around, bringing honors to 
Waltham High. The Quinn quintet climaxed a highly 
successful season by gaining an invitation to the Tech 
Tourney, after carrying off the Suburban League crown. 
The team fought its way right down to the finals, where 
it finally succumbed under the attack of a powerful 
Durfee five that eventually went, on to win the State 
•'’hampionship. We sophomores proved our loyalty by 
feeling just as bad over the defeat as the juniors and 
seniors. 

A dubious distinction that we gained that year was 
to be the first sophomore class not to have a social, but 
we promised to make up for that the next year. 


Time marched on, and so did we, most of us anyhow, 
and the following year found us well established as 
juniors. We started out on another of the often called 
“best years of our lives” with a little more confidence — ■ 
probably increased by the sight of tin 1 confused sopho 
more class repeating out past mistakes. 

The sport pages reported nothing spectacular about 
our football team that year, but we staunchly defended 
our players and faithfully attended every game. Our 
reward was the overwhelming 40- 13 victory over Everett, 
which was much stronger than the score might indicate. 

Winter came and the basketball team once more re- 
ceived the honors by entering the tourney for the second 
straight year. However, that Durfee team stopped us 
again, this time in the semi-finals. The garden was 
packed, and an eye-filling paper barrage cascaded onto 
the floor as the final whistle found the teams deadlocked. 
The suspense continued as we drew Durfee into two over- 
time periods, until finally the game ended in a sudden 
death. We had lost! This game was unanimously ac- 
claimed as one of the most exciting in the history of the 
tourney. Watso Bartlett, who broke two Waltham scoring 
records, and Dick White gave promise of a strong team 
to come in 1949. 

Despite repeated objections and rejections from the 
male gallery, the girls still continued to trip on their 
lengthy skirts and the objectors retaliated by refusing 
to wear ties, which, on the whole, they never did anyhow. 

It was Wendell Goudey, star end of the football team, 
who led us in our flag saluting that. year. Jo Mula and 
Herb Everett came back to be vice-president and auditor 
respectively, and Betty Jane Andrews took over the secre- 
tary-treasurer honors. 

As sure as May rolled around, so did the long awaited 
Junior Prom. A drizzling sky did not dampen anyone’s 
spirits, as everybody had a traditionally good time. The 
prom committee, headed by Don Farrell, was the prime 
factor in its success. 

Finally the great moment came; we filed into the 
halls to begin our last year. We were seniors! Along 
with us came the realization and constant reminder that, 
we were the one hundredth anniversary graduating class 
and were to act especially dignified — which, of course, 
we did. 

This was a year of changes and developments. The 
first that greeted us as we came back from our summer 
vacation was a new administrative force. After many 
years of service, the esteemed Mr. Goodrich had retired, 
and Mr. Huff had capably assumed the duties as our 
headmaster. Appointed as assistant headmaster was Mr. 
Sheehy, our well-known biology teacher. These changes 
brought a touch of the Dartmouth green to our red and 
white. The many new faces in the faculty at first gave 
us the feeling that we were in a different school, but a 
glance at the monitors told us we were still in Waltham 
High. 

One new development was the National Honor Society, 
which was adopted right after the close of the third 
quarter. I can still see the lucky members proudly dis- 
playing their pins to whoever came within sight. Another 
important inauguration that took place in our last year 
was the student council. For years the majority of the 
student body had raised heir voices in hearty approval of 
student council organization, and towards the close of the 
year it finally came into effect. This, in itself, is a far 
cry from the old birch stick discipline of the one room 
schoolhouse era and is one of the examples of modern 
education. 

After reading carefully the numerous campaign posters 
preceding our election of class officers, we chose John 
McGovern, our “typical American boy’’, who played a 
little football, hockey, and baseball, as president of the 


•Senior Class. For I ho third successive year, vivacious .1 r» 
Mula emerged vice-president, while dazzling Barli Be 
Marco ami hockey player Gum Carlson became secretary 
treasurer ami auditor respectively. 

To the complete surprise of all, including the weather 
man, there was no snowstorm on the night of the Senior 
Dance; in fact, it was under a starry sky that the family 
car drove up outside the main ballroom of the school 
(alias the gym). The scene of our many basketball 
triumphs was hardly recognizable with the very effective 
centennial decorations, highlighted by a huge silver ball 
in the middle of the ceiling. The lack of sneakers was 
distinguishable among the dancers as the couples in flow- 
ing gowns and tuxedoes glided over the floor. The chair- 
man of this most successful event was Wendell Goudey. 

In addition to the usual extra-curricular organizations, 
new ones have been formed during this past year. The 
Tech Club, the Photography Club, and the Art Club 
were organized by Mr. Pettinati, Mr. Perkins, and Miss 
Russo respectively. These clubs were enthusiastically re- 
ceived by the students and gave evidence that there are 
some things for which a pupil does not mind staying 
after school. The official organization of the Business 
Courses, the Commercial Club, was re instated after some 
years’ absence. One of the successful events of our 
senior year was the dance sponsored by this club. 

The first Saturday night dance in the history of the 
school was another enjoyable affair highlighting our 100th 
year. The Football Dance, directed by Sally Safford, to 
defray part of the cost of the yearbook, was planned for 
the night of the Newton game, as a celebration of our 
victory, so undaunted students filled the dance floor any- 
how, and a good time was had by all. 

A look into the sports picture will reveal that the 
various teams were in good form. One example was the 
fairly successful season through which the football squad 
plummeted, under the guiding eye of new head coach, 
Jack Fisher. The basketball team for the third successive 
year took the league championship and automatically en- 
tered the Tech Tourney. Ignoring the sports experts they 
emerged victorious in the first two playoffs, but met 
their nemesis, however, in Somerville, in the finals, thus 
just missing out on the trophy once again. Besides play- 
ing his usual outstanding game in the tourney, Bartlett 
also set a new Suburban League scoring record. 


CL 


as S 


Glamour popped up in the ranks nl us seniors m the 
form of a f'entennial t^ueeii and her court. Chosen for 
the queen was Barb DeMarco (her title is enough de 
seription) while the other lovely maidens were Nancy 
MeGirr, Winnie MacKinnon, Phyllis Fowler, and Betty 
.lane Andrews. It is reported that the male iiiciuIhtm of 
the class had no complaints over the selections. 

Every Senior Class has its Senior Play, and we, living 
typical, were no exception. What a Lift , starred by John 
Malloy as Henry Aldrich, and Winnie MacKinnon as 
Barbara Pearson, who, like everybody else, could not keep 
Henry out of trouble. These two were supported by a 
cast of Barrymores and Hayes in Flo Tankel, as Head- 
master Art Phipps’ secretary; Fred Clarkson, Janice 
Woollier, Cynthia Parsons, Jean Mcegan, and Ruth Kil- 
patrick as faculty members; Joe Pittorino, Barbara Hodg- 
don, Jo Mula, and Bill Riley as students; Dick Lockhart 
as assistant principal; Sally Safford as Mrs. Aldrich; 
Jim Russo as a parent, and Dick White as the detective. 
Mr. Ralph Nelson, as director, added this to his long line 
of hits. 

It was David Sabsay and Sally Safford who were at 
the helm of the Mirror, in this, its fortieth year, and they 
combined their efforts to bring us commendable mid-year 
and graduation issues. Leon Simmons and Louise Bic- 
chieri did a great job as business managers. 

Thus we reached the end of our senior year. We, 
the (’lass of 1949, after carrying our motto of “ Laborate 
et Vincite” through the months, have closed our high 
school books for the last time. We are now ready to 
step forth into the adventurous world — into a new aehpol 
— a school of opportunity and hardships, a school of 
trial and error, of success and failure. Although we have 
closed our school books, we will always keep open our 
memories of the fun, good times, and trials of our days 
at Waltham High. We will always remember and be 
grateful for the lessons we have learned here — not just 
the assignments, but the experience in “getting along’’, 
of trying, of not giving up when on the verge of failing. 
No, we will never forget, our high school days, and we 
hope that one hundred years from today, school life will 
mean as much to the two hundredth graduating class as 
it has meant to us.

THE FORTY-NINERS 

By 

David Sadkay 

Tomorrow we, with pride and some regret 
Shall leave a past which we cannot forget 
\nd enter humbly into man's estate 
Tomorrow we at last shall graduate. 

N et we behold a world of misused power 
And know we enter at the crucial hour. 

Our elders failed; to us the task remains 
Of setting forth across the hostile plains 
And through the wilderness of hate and fear. 
Like those strong heroes of another year 
Who braved a thousand dangers in their quest 
And gave to man the vast and virgin West. 

Now we, the Forty-niners of today, 

Must cross a far more fearsome waste than they. 
We seek a treasure far more precious thau 
Mere gold. We seek the brotherhood of man; 
And when success permits our toil to cease, 

We shqll have given to man an Age of Peace. 



JOSEPHINE MILA 


Tin- sun shone brightly on one corner of my ilosk, 
that was cluttered with the morning mail. A glance told 
me that there was a good measure of the usual — the 
same old hills, the same old appeals for charity, the 
same old ads — hut a square-shaped envelope attracted 
mv attention. I picked it up and felt it. It was heavier 
than the ordinary letter, and 1 could feel the embossed 
print on the inside. I opened it and found an invitation 
to attend the dedication of a new building in Waltham. 

All editor is a hard man to convince, but I suggested 
a feature article with homespun flavor about “the return 
to the old home town’’. He consented after some argu- 
ment. 

I was awakened from the misty reverie of an un- 
eventful train trip by the information from Barbara 
Frizzell, mv pretty and efficient secretary, that our train 
would arrive at the Waltham station in five minutes. 
She was right. We stepped down off the train and heard 
a band playing “Ain’t She Sweet!’’ Wasn’t it nice of 
them, I thought. But the feeling was short-lived. Walk- 
ing right by us was Mayor Arthur Raymond Michael 
Phipps II and his board of advisers — Bob Ferla, Fred 
Clarkson, Walter Duffin, James Stark, and Russ Bennett. 
They stopped at the steps of the next Pullman to wel- 
come home Barbara Scholl, “The Queen of Potato 
Land’’. Accompanying her were two ladies-in-waiting, 
Ann Nobile and Esther Redden. Our own welcome-home 
committee, made up of Peter Mail's, the famous artist; 
David Mail's, his brusli-waslier; and Gerry Horne, Peter’s 
private bodyguard; met us about a half hour later, punc- 
tual as usual. 

We were led to a long, sleek, black limousine and 
who should be in the driver’s seat but Ray Pickell, 
David’s private chauffeur for the day. We drove to a 
building which was once the site of Grover Cronin’s, and 
I was amazed to see a large neon sign that read, “Rah 
Clasby’s Hotel — We Always Serve Towels!’’ We went 
in, waved to Barbara DeMarco sitting serenely in the 
lobby, signed the register with the room clerk, George 
Beaton, casually reading our names upside down and 
beckoning to Graham Armstrong, the bellhop, who proved 
to be an unerring guide to our rooms. Tired from the 
long trip, my secretary and I went to sleep with pleasant 
anticipations of the week end ahead of us. 

After being served breakfast by Priscilla Meade and 
Judy Howard because the dining room was so spacious, 
we left for a glimpse of our city. We walked up Moody 
Street to a large art store with a sign that read, 

“We sell paints and brushes to Punch and Judy, 

Just come in and ask for John or Trudy! ” 

I always knew John Malloy and Trudy Andrews would 
make a cute couple. Further up the street we noticed 
a very good looking young man, pushing a twin baby 
carriage with two other children clinging to the handles. 
Could it be? Yes, of course it was Don Baldaro, the 
shy boy, now a professional baby sitter. 


Our attention was distracted from Don to a small 
. brass band clanging its way down Moody Street. Paula 
Fitzgerald and Joan Riefel were in front carrying a large 
sign that read, 

“You may kill us, shoot us, or even bury, 

But we’re always loyal to Ronnie Perry.’ 

It was signed Dougie Robertson, Barbara Tedeseo, June 
Hodgkins, and Elaine Romotsky. Who should be carrying 
a lighted torch but Cynthia Parsons. 

Curious about the rest of our city, we walked toward 
Main Street and stopped at a small coffee shop. To no 
surprise of mine we were served by the new owners them- 
selves, Walter McGovern and Dick Parker. While we 
were drinking our second free cup, a distinguished look- 
ing man entered the shop carrying a leather brief case. 
His dark- rimmed glasses confused me for a minute, but 
1 knew that face. Yes, it was Carmelo Basile, now Pro- 
fessor of Education at Columbia. Following him were 
a row of girls asking for autographs. Among them were 
Suzanne Racine, Theresa lodice, Nancy Blomberg, Carol 
Hansen, and Gloria Salvato. 

We left the shop and noticed by the Waltham Watch 
on the corner that we still had time for adventure. My 
secretary, eager to see some of her old friends, asked me 
if I would walk down a block to the place where Giar- 
dina’s used to be. There we beheld Earl Anair behind 
the soda fountain, putting up orders which Gloria Cald- 
well, Ann Boulton, Irene Doucet, and Rae Peeling were 
calling out. 

After eating qur ice cream, we walked west on Main 
street. On the way we met Jean Blanchard walking by 
with a small troop of young children behind her. She 
said that she and her assistant, June Wheeler, were 
taking them on a field trip to the woods to draw wild 
birds and flowers. When we reached the library, we 
noticed a new addition. Harold Bond, who was passing 
by, told us that it was built through the courtesy of the 
Sabsay and Safford Further Educational Foundation. 
We walked in and met Mary Olive Wall, private secretary 
to Mr. Sabsay. While we were waiting, we noticed Don 
Wile reading a book entitled “How To Tell Your English 
Teacher She’s Wrong Without Getting a Conduct Mark! ’’ 
Ah, memories, Don, memories. 

Returning, Mary told us that Mr. Sabsay and Miss 
Safford would see us. She led us into a very modern 
office with green leather seats, red carpets, and yellow 
wallpaper. David was a veritable fund of information. 
He said that Robie Nix, Lloyd Pearson and George Cobb 
were members of the Pyramid Club, Inc. Their dues, we 
were told, were only $2048 a month. Gus Carlson was 
now living in Florida and training with the Braves. 
Peter Clarke and Ann Halloran have opened a new Baby 
Shop and have hired Phil Newfell as manager. Sally 
informed us that she has just received her 15th Master’s 
Degree in Education at the University of New York. 

A little thirsty from all the intellectual conversation 
with Sally and David, we left and stopped at Tom 
Yahey’s drugstore and ordered a coke from William 
Archambault, who said that he was taking dramatic les- 
sons at the Cutzie Cullen School of Dramatics. He also 
told us that Lenny Shaw was taking lessons as Clarke 
Gable’s stand-in, since all he did was stand around all 
day. We left Tom’s store and walked down to the un- 
forgettable Athletic Field. Here we saw Coach Whizzer 
White fingering a twenty cent cigar, and seated under a 
large beach umbrella. In back of him were his two as- 
sistants, Wendell Goudey and Jim Russo, who were 
putting their teams through stiff practices via micro- 
phones. On the other end of the field (I could hardly 
believe my eyes) but there was Ruthie Kilpatrick train- 
ing young girls from four to sixteen to become cheer- 
leaders. Ruthie waved to us and shouted that she was 
getting them ready for high school tryouts. What’s all 
the noise? Well, if it wasn’t good old Mr. Crawford try- 
ing to get his band to make a W without making it look 
as if they were playing Blind Man’s Bluff. 


We left the field and decided to go to see a baseball 
game which was being played at the new “Honest John 
McGovern Stadium. ’’ Collecting tickets at the gate were 
Frances Green, Salley Ann Wilkins, and Mary Kelly. 
Orazio Salamone, the stadium attendant, ushered us to 
a box seat, where we were privileged to sit with a few 
of the notables attending this benefit game. Among 
them were Police Chief Arthur Osborne, Professor James 
Tumulty of Harvard and Gladys Richardson, with her 
famous husband, Dr. Lucious. Jean Mahoney and Sylvia 
McGilvary passed out programs. What’s this? A girls’ 
team consisting of Phyllis Fowler, Lillian Porretti, Arlene 
Elliott, Helen Croshere, Nancy Smylie, Sylvia Lowe, Grace 
Dumas, Pat Stevenson and Flo Mula played against a 
boys’ team. I noticed by the name on their shirts that 
they called themselves the During Daughters. Finally, 
after Dr. Dick Lockhart carried Pat Stevenson off the 
field on a stretcher, the Daughters won 101 to 3. 

After the game there were special buses operating to 
carry the many people to the Hovey Memorial where a 
reception was held in honor of Herbert Everett’s and 
Elvin Butcher ’s appointments to the State Legislature. 
Maynard Wellington and Irving Connolly cheerfully made 
many trips with their buses so that all the people could 
get to the hall. 

A few words from Jimmy Morse, master of ceremonies, 
started off the program. First he introduced the famed 
radio, television, and film star, Bertha Drury, who sang 
a beautiful song of personal memories, Ah, Sweet Mystery 
of Life. A brief skit entitled “The Alcoholic’’ or “Am 
I R-i-g-h-t?” was enacted by Chuck Roache, Joseph 
Tomao, Bernard Huber, and Dick Noyes. When the ap- 
plause died down Sally Jones danced, while in the back- 
ground the chorus girls, Barbara Pierce, Vivian Prime, 
Marion Grant, and Caroline Gustafson sang the popular 
tune “What Did I Do?’’ 

Before the lights were lowered for a song by the 
Barber Shop Marmonies of Dick Fennel, Dave MacNeill, 
Gordon Lincoln, and Albert Arena, I saw in a far off' 
corner, Theresa Coughlin, Joyce Cullen, Pauline LeBlanc, 
and Iris Dougherty talking with Hollywood’s Newest 

* * 


Sensation, Jimmy Tobin — here on a personal appearance 
tour with his press agent, Ed Tracey. Suddenly the spot 
light was centered on the stage and Jimmy introduced 
Jeanne DeMarco, the famous dress designer; Helen Dakin, 
the noted psychiatrist; Beatrice Parisi, the famous hair 
stylist just back from Paris; Nellie Roman, the famous 
artist with her butler, Harry Cook, who was walking her 
dog, Fido; and Janice Woollier, owner of a nationally 
known magazine. 

During intermission, I noticed Bob Erickson and Dick 
Bradley running a soft drink bar. Their favorite was 
a mixture of coke, root beer, ginger ale, cider and milk. 
They called it “One Dose of Heaven.” In the other 
corner Dick Schoorens was sidling ice bags and Bromo 
Seltser. Busines was enormous. After our appetizing 
dinner, we took a taxi home, sharing it with Carol Well 
man, Betty Schmidt, Ruth Holan, and Peggy Delaney. 

The big day came — -the day that had provided tin 
invitation, the excuse, and the argument to return to 
Waltham. The people whom we met and whose progress 
and change we had seen and learned about in a few 
hours made a fitting prelude to the reason for being here. 
My secretary and I were a little wistful as we walked 
along with the many others to the site of the dedication. 
On the way we met Winnie MacKinnon, who walked the 
rest of the way with us. We turned the corner to gaze 
in awe at the building of gleaming white granite, simple 
in line and impressive, a legend of three words on the 
facade. To one side was a platform peopled with digni- 
taries of the past and present. There were speeches by 
Fred Clarkson, chairman of the School Department, and 
Florence Tankel, Superintendent of Schools. Gerry Mollica 
sang a lovely aria from her latest operatic triumph. 

Then Mayor Phipps walked up to the microphone jfitd 
called a certain young man to the center of the stage. 
“Mr. Bartlett,” said the Mayor, “I am proud to present 
to you the key which wall open the doors of this school. 
May nianv, many vears of success come to Bartlett 
High ! ’ ’

CYNTHIA PARSONS 


CLASS OF 1949 

Wo, the Class of 1949, being of sound mind (wo 
assume) and disposing memory, do make, publish, and 
declare this our last, will and testament. After payment 
of our just debts (towel money, that is), we bequeath 
and devise as follows: 

To Mr. Huff, our new and zealous headmaster, a pair 
of very squeaky shoes, so that future classes can hear 
him coming in the corridors and can know when to stop 
talking. 

To Mr. Sheehy, our good-natured class adviser and 
submaster, a set of happy little shmoos, which will run 
his many errands and which, at two o’clock each after- 
noon, will tiptoe into Room 208 and write out ten times 
every chapter assigned to those unfortunates who thought 
they could talk in biology class. 

To Miss Darmcdy, who made history come alive for 
us, carpeted floors so that a pencil dropped in one of 
her ‘ ‘ restless classes ’ ’ won ’t distract her. 

To Miss Mooney, sets of typewriter keys covered with 
plush to keep the manicures of our lovely future secre- 
taries in perfect condition for their nightly dates. 

To Mr. Smyth, whose awe-inspiring voice has followed 
us through the hushed corridors for the last time, a 
monitor even bigger and better (heaven forbid ! ) than 
Walter Hallowell. 

To Miss Sewall and Miss Frost, who have guided our 
faltering steps through waltzes, square dancing, and the 
cherished ladder, padding for all that hard, wooden equip- 
ment on which we so often scraped our complaining knees 
and knuckles. 

To Miss Bliss and Miss Babb, pilots of our foods 
and nutrition courses, one of two things: — either a new 
punch recipe or, if they must use orange concentrate, a 
medicine dropper with which to measure it. 

To Miss Graverson, who jokingly threatened once or 
twice to "fly out the window" if we didn’t follow her 
instructions about patterns, fashion shows even finer 
than those put. on during our three-year climb. 


To Mr. Elliott, one of our long-suffering algebra 
teachers, an enlarged colored portrait of his ‘‘veteran’’ 
pupils, to keep on his desk always. 

To Mr. Cavanagh and Miss Grover, whose after-school 
concerts wen* enjoyed by so many, a recorder, so that 
records with the sound of their music may be carried out 
info the cold world by the euties in the Business Course 
in order to keep them from being homesick for W. II. S. 

To our coaches, Mr. Geary, Mr. Quinn, Mr. Brian, and 
Mr. Pislior, we leave the tine sportsmanship displayed bv 
all our teams this year and the hope that next year may 
see both hockey and basketball championships landed at 
Waltham High. 

To Miss Nolan and Miss Madden, who have patiently 
inspired our eager-beaver cheerleaders, a group of girls 
that will attend every practice in the ‘‘cat”’ and will 
decide once and for all whether to wear white or maroon 
sox. 

To Miss Clement, who has listened untiringly to so 
many tirades and complaints about life in general from 
her College Prep, seniors, the proceeds from several Pyra- 
mid Clubs so that she can put all her “A” French stu- 
dents through college. 

To Mr. Morang, our sharp, tweed-suited chem. teacher, 
a bottle, gallon-sized, of Chanel Number Five. There 
must be something that will smother the perpetual smell 
of chlorine that pervades Room 308. 

To the Class of 1950, that looked upon us with rever- 
ence and awe, we leave that fictitious belief of every 
junior, built up by the faculty, that, if a student has 
been faithful to his studies and has slaved over his home- 
work for the past two years, his senior year will be a 
time of ease and enjoyment. 

To next year’s juniors, whose faces are no longer 
green, we leave the sophomores, to do with them whatever 
they will. 

To the incoming sophomores, bless their little pointed 
heads, we leave the time-worn quip of everyone who 
glances up at the walls in assembly for the first time: 
‘‘ Well, is that what the Class of 1908 looked like?" 

And to our ancient and venerable high school — we 
just leave. 

As co-executors of this will and testament, we appoint 
Miss Flagg, Mr. Curry, Mr. Hollis, and Miss Eaton. 

In Witness Whereof, we have hereunto set our hand 
and seal this first day of June in the year of our Lord 
one thousand nine hundred and forty-nine.

PenonaLj Portraits

cl it A a ffj, 


one wi 


th 


cjCicjrhtA ! 


There’s magic in light . . . add a light here, place a 
spotlight there, and your portrait takes on the appear- 
ance of real form and individuality. 

Your Vantine photographer knows how lighting 
effects can be best used. . . . How easily they can re- 
flect your personality. 

Your Vantine photographer knows best how to se- 
cure the sharply etched photograph your engraver de- 
sires of the important senior year. . . . The victories of 
the athletic teams. . . . The brilliance of social occa- 
sions. . . . The Prom . . . The plays. . . . The de- 
bates. . . . The expression of every-day life on the 
campus. 

That personalized portraits by Vantine are impor- 
tant is attested to by the fact that over 300 schools and 
colleges repeatedly entrust their photographic work to 
Vantine.
